overseas instead of here in the united states of america. if mitt romney had been president when the auto industry was on the verge of collapse, we might not have an automobile industry today. we'd be buying cars from china instead of selling to them. >> mitt romney's path to the presidency is impossible without ohio's 18 electoral votes. right now winning ohio is not looking good for romney. six ohio polls were released this week. five of them have president obama leading. one is tied. president obama's average lead in ohio is 2.3 points. that's a big lead, seriously. now families in northern ohio have not forgotten what the rescue of the automobile industry did for their state. one in eight ohio jobs are about the automobile industry. this is why mitt romney is doing everything he possibly can to down play the impact of the auto rescue. his political director says the obama campaign dropped the auto bailout on us, but there's only so long you can ride that one trick pony. you think getting a paycheck is a one-trick pony? romney called last night's event a victory rally. today romney gav

is the president of the united states. by the way, we only have one president. i don't like the idea of mitt romney frying to go around and pretend he's the president of the united states when he's not. president obama canceled campaign events, and then governor romney -- this is a statement about what you do as president. that's why this storm is an important issue. you have to be president of all the american people and not president of new jersey and virginia because they have republican governors. why didn't mitt romney bother to call the other three? maybe because he has a record where he said back in the defwat last year when he was running trying to be severely conservatively that he would cut fema funding and send it back to the states and privatize it. this is why it's so important, because it illustrates the importance of government and illustrates the two fundamentally two different choices of the two candidates running for the highest office in land. >> chip, i think we have that sound from the debate. at the time governor romney was asked whether or not with fema and its financial prob

. there is an authority that comes with being the president of the united states that they have been leaning on harder and harder. you saw it in the secretary debate when he's talking about the deaths in benghazi. i'm the president and you've seen him using that card playing it more and more and i think at this point, lord knows what is in the mind of those few undecided voters. >> apparently our control room has decided is more important that any word that the giant romney was saying. >> he's decided to completely go all in. >> thank you very much for keeping the giant romney quiet. >> it's our great pleasure. >>> coming up. the obama campaign's target, ohio, ohio and ohio. and in the rewrite, how another comedian may have been the source for president obama's best line of the night. .

not acquire a nuclear weapon. take a listen. >> i'll put the leaders of iran on notice that the united states and our friends and allies will prevent them from acquiring nuclear weapons capability. i will not hesitate to impose new sanctions on iran and will tighten the sanctions we currently have. i'll restore the permanent presence of aircraft carrier task forces in the eastern mediterranean and the gulf. and i'll work with israel to increase our military assistance and coordination. for the sake of peace, we must make clear to iran through actions, not just words, that their nuclear pursuit will not be tolerated. >> richard haass, where do we begin? i feel he was making a false accusation about the present policy that the president is placing on iran and trying to turn the argument around. a policy that quite frankly he was describing the same thing, was he not? that we're already doing? >> with one important exception. when he talks about preventing iran from getting nuclear capabilities, that's slightly different. the president talks about our policy is to prevent iran from getting nucle

" report that -- it's not true that the united states and iran have agreed to one-on-one talks or any meeting after the american election. the president has made clear that the president will prevent iran from getting a nuclear weapon and we will do what we must to achieve. >> george mcgovern died this morning at the age of 90. we'll have more on his life and legacy later in the show. for more front page politics, i'm joined now by national political reporter for politico david catonese and anne cornbleau. i want to start with the new nbc news "wall street journal" poll showing the race is now tied at 57%. what does that tell you about how close this election might be on election day? >> it does show that romney has some pull in the national polls at least. but we need to burrow down into these state by state polls, seven to nine states that are really going to decide these elections, the sliver of decided voters is not really big. the national polls are good to look at for overall trends. but florida, virginia, ohio, these are the ones that really matter to determine the electoral ou
